Snag Stand

I am a very big fan of Snag Stand, a small pop-up-style shop at the corner of Melbourne Central’s “cool side” on La Trobe and Swanston. They are slowly expanding their creatively named ‘haute’ dogs and all of them sound promising. They have a buzzer style system so you can nick off across the road or … More Snag Stand

Oscar Cooper

Oscar Cooper is in prime position along busy Greville Street, nestled amongst art galleries, retro clothing and quirky stores. The line is a common sight, with people packed into the small space in front of the fireplace (where the jaffles of the day are written), but trust me, the wait is worth it. Wait staff … More Oscar Cooper

Saint Crispin

The much loved St Crispin was finally visited for a special occasion and did not disappoint. Just be aware, when you book for a group, and people do not show, they WILL enforce the cancellation rule, thus our remaining members of the party chose the seven course tasting menu ($130) to make up that cost … More Saint Crispin

Impresso Cafe

A random little cafe near Flagstaff Gardens, it’s an easy place to pick up a decent sandwich during your lunch break.

Salami Ciabatta ($7.0) as much as I dislike salami/find it the more processed … More Impresso Cafe

Kazuki’s would definitely be high on that list, a modern Japanese Australian fine dining restaurant which prides itself on perfection. The wait staff are very attentive and reinforce the lovely relaxed, casual atmosphere. Each dish comes out with … More Kazuki’s

Mrs Kim’s Grill

Korean BBQ has never been my favourite as I always end up hungry, smelling like smoked foods and forking out a lot of money. That being said, you can’t deny the just-cooked delight of meat on a grill in front of you. Enter Mrs Kim’s in Carnegie (which used to be an epic all you … More Mrs Kim’s Grill

Waffee

Chanced by this lovely cosy shop front on the way down Swanston Street. By chanced, I mean my nose dragged my in, hook line and sinker. If there’s one thing I cannot resist, it’s freshly baked pastries, in this case, WAFFLES! If you can resist the smell for a while, you’ll notice PUNZ and a … More Waffee
